Blinn College is planning to construct a $32 million academic facility on the RELLIS Campus in Brenham, Texas. Designed by Gensler, the Phase II Building will provide classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, and labs for programs in engineering and computer science. The three-story, 75,000-sf structure will also offer gathering and interaction areas, a student services center, a food vending court, and a large meeting room. Construction is slated to begin in February of 2021 with occupancy in fall of 2022.
Additionally, Blinn College began construction in June of 2020 on the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Innovation Building on the RELLIS campus. Designed by PBK Architects, the 72,000-sf structure will provide a 3,000-sf innovation hub, a computer science classroom, an information technology lab, nursing simulation suites, and anatomy and physiology facilities. The Texas A&M Engineering Academy at Blinn-Brenham will occupy lab space in the building, which will feature a two-story research area for the design and repair of unmanned aerial vehicles. Vaughn Construction is the general contractor for the project, which will open in fall of 2021.
